to poetry. >> i remember talking to philip levine the number of poetry readings, he said you can't take a walk without tripping over one as owe poe posed to when he was young. >> it's enormous. a small percentage of that population that actually reads poetry, i think however that poetry is influencing the culture in ways we don't see and ways that other arts are as well. in the lives of people who don't pay attention to it. in ways that not always aware of. i talk about that in the introduction. >> more than 100,000 submissions certainly a lot of people are writing poetry. >> i think it's actually -- may not get people to admit that they're writing poetry, but the number of people who write poetry -- don't show it to anybody. i mean all the time, they don't want to show it just talk about the act of having written something. i think it's embedded in our genes. we don't know it as culture that doesn't have poetry. it has such roots that not going to be -- >> we'll continue this conversation online. i hope our viewers will join us there. for now, christian wiman thanks for talking to u
conservative like a rush limbaugh, sean hannity, mark levine to even things out a little bit and challenge the democrat in the general election in ways that they don't. we had other stories that were big media stories in 2012. you remember the unfortunate shooting in aurora, colorado, where abc's brian ross, went on the air and looked up in the phone book and found a name that matched the alleged shooter and concluded, gee, he must be part of the tea party. this is the kind of stuff that passes for sober analysis with the mainstream media. there are many others but those two stand out in my mind immediately. jon: christie, your favorites of the year? >> well it is not a surprise i disagree with cal on this one. look, i think the biggest media failure of is the year is failure to report the extreme lurch to the right of the republican party, a party that had gone from being conservative opposition party to one that is more about the transvageal ultrasound, banning of contraception and one that stopped trying to problem solve and now more interested in obstruction. i think that is because th
to senators levin and mccain. live on c-span. >> why don't we give them a bunch over here? ok, sorry for the delay. we thought we had the vote, but there was no vote. senator mccain and i are part of a group of eight senators who have been working for about a month to come up with a proposal for our leaders and our conferences, which will hopefully overcome the gridlocked that has so permeated the u.s. senate. the eight senators who have participated in this effort are myself, senator mccain, senator schumer, senator alexander, senator cardin, senator kyle, senator prior, and senator barasso. it is a bipartisan proposal and we believe strongly we must reform the senate's procedures if it is going to do business more efficiently and fairly. there are many parts to our proposal, i would say the key number-one part is to give the majority leader options to overcome the filibuster and the threat of a filibuster on a motion to proceed. that has been the greatest problem around here in terms of getting to the business of working on bills. we cannot get to bills if there is a filibuster or
on your screen now! david: joining the company now from chicago is larry levin with trading advantage. larry, we hear a lot of theoretical talk, political talk about the fiscal cliff, let's get real specific. we actually have a chart of how much you're paying in taxes now on the left and this is how much extra you would pay if you go off the fiscal cliff. so look at that, if you're 50,000, you pay about 1200 bucks more. 100,000, $3600 more. how specific -- that's how it would affect individual income tax. how would it affect the economy and specifically the commodity trading that you do? >> well, it's for the stock indexes that i trade, the s&p and dow jones those markets i think will take a very large hit. in fact a good example of that would be what we saw about week and a half ago when we saw the republicans come in with the vote and then tend up not taking the vote at all. we saw the s&ps lose about 30 handles overnight, got a lot of that back because everybody thought they would go back and talk again. that's a really good example, a little bit of foreshadowing if you will of wha
